Year 3 Home Learning – Thursday 14th January


A big well done for the work completed so far this week. Don’t forget to send your nominations for this week’s value of Honesty on Class Dojo. How have you demonstrated honesty this week?

Here is an outline of the work we would like you to complete today:



Today we would like you to practice spelling words that end in -nk and -nt. Can you use your blending and segmenting skills to help you? This is set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.  You can also practice your phonics sounds by accessing the website www.phonicshero.com Just ask your teacher for the login!



Read Chapter 4 of the Tale of Ostrich and a Very Long Neck. How can the friends save Ostrich from becoming Crocodile’s breakfast? Test your understanding of the story by completing the Quiz. This is also set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.



Think back to yesterday’s persuasive writing. What did you decide to do with the Iron Man? Today we would like you to plan a letter sharing your advice (we will write the letter in full tomorrow!). In role as one of the farmers, plan a letter to Hogarth’s father with your advice about what to do with the Iron Man.


Plan out each paragraph by using bullet points. Use these prompts to help you:

  • Who are you writing to?
  • What is your/their address?
  • Why are you writing?
  • What should we do with the Iron Man?



Today we are continuing counting in multiples of 8. Begin by working out the four challenges in the maths starter. Don’t forget to show your working out! Then move on to Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Use repeated addition or arrays to help you solve each number sentence. See if you can use mathematical vocabulary when you are explaining your reasoning.

You can practice your multiplication and division skills by logging on to Times Tables Rockstars. If you have forgotten your login, just send us a message!  



Today we are going to find out about magnets. Begin by watching this video to find out what a magnet is. Magnets come in different shapes and sizes: horseshoe magnets, bar magnets, round magnets. Each magnet has a south pole and a north pole.


  • Opposites attract: this means the north pole of a magnet attracts (pulls towards) the south pole of another magnet.
  • Likes repel: this means that the north pole of a magnet repels (pushes away) the north pole of another magnet and the south pole of a magnet repels (pushes away) the south pole of another magnet.


Magnetic materials are always made of metal, but not all metals are magnetic. Find out which materials are magnetic by watching this video.


Today we would like you to design a poster about magnets. Include a combination of drawings and written facts with information you have found out. What is a magnet? What does ‘attract’ and ‘repel’ mean? What materials are magnetic?
